Dresser Wayne Innovative Products Attract Fuel Retailers at International Forecourt & Fuel Equipment Show in Birmingham
BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND (March 23,2007)—With innovative products that provide significant, tangible benefits to fuel retailers, the Dresser Wayne exhibit at the International Forecourt and Fuel Equipment show in Birmingham created significant interest among show attendees. Included in the exhibit were Dresser Wayne’s Xflo™ meter, Vapour Recovery Stage (VRS) II solution, temperature compensation unit and pay-at-the-pump unit.
Because of the potential savings for fuel retailers, the Dresser Wayne Xflo meter was a major show attraction. The Dresser Wayne meter virtually eliminates meter drift allowing retailers to save potentially thousands of liters of lost fuel annually. “It is a twin screw meter with incredible accuracy and virtually no drift,” says David Kerr, UK managing director for Dresser Wayne. “The Xflo meter is capable of saving 0.1 minimum of the volume sold, which means thousands of pounds on a busy site. On a site of 4 million liters a year, for example, this could save approximately £4000.” Dresser Wayne launched the Xflo Meter in Europe earlier this year, and the Birmingham equipment show was the first opportunity for many retailers to have a product demonstration. The Dresser Wayne lab-tested and field-proven VRS II solution can be retrofitted to practically any pump to meet the new, rigorous EU standards. To meet increased demand throughout the UK, Dresser Wayne has established a national network of authorized installers to offer its turnkey VRS solution. “What we offer is a global solution, but with local supply,” says Kerr.
Attendees also got a preview of Dresser Wayne’s temperature compensation unit, which will be launched with full approval later this spring on Dresser Wayne Star pumps.
In addition, Dresser Wayne demonstrated its pay-at-the-pump product and the feature-rich Global Ovation® iX™ fuel dispenser. The pay-at-the-pump unit is specifically developed for the European chip and pin market and is available as a stand-alone unit or an integrated feature of the Dresser Wayne Star pump. The new Global Ovation iX fuel dispenser is powered by Dresser Wayne’s state-of-the-art iX technology platform, which can perform demanding fuel dispenser activities while offering additional features designed to help retailers drive sales, lower costs and improve accuracy and uptime.
